I had an appointment last week, which was a good day for me..
I usually get Wednesdays off and Thursdays.. so one of the techs "scheduled" an appointment for me. She didnt give me a date she just gave me a day, which was Monday at 2:15pm.
I figured okay so its this Monday, I have been calling all morning to confirm an appointment. And so far no one has been able to locate me in their scheduling. Its pretty irritating considering I had to take the day off just for today. and now I have a day without pay because of an appointment i thought I had.
Now I have been on hold for about 15 mins to just make my own appointment, on a day I know I will be seen and a day I know will be worth my time.
I have had it with all these pregnancy appointments. They just add a bit more stress for me. ugh!!
After numerous calls, I knew it couldnt be so hard to make an appointment. I work in the medical field so it was never that hard. Anyways, turns out the referral form sent to the ultrasound people had been expired or whatever. And i demanded my doctor call them herself and tell them I took the day off and needed the appointment. haha the inner pregnant &^$%* came out in me and I have an appointment this afternoon in about 3 hours. I just have to stop by the office and pick up the referral form and hand deliver the order myself. At least this day wont be wasted.
I knew its better to handle things on my own. geez, some hospitals. lol
and to top it off, after I spoke to her this morning and asked where she made my appointment she gave me their direct number and again they werent able to locate me. So i called her back and she hasnt answered my calls, or any calls I've made to her. And I figired it would be best to make my own appointment, I can do that but I need a doctors referral in place. Such a waste of my morning!!
I even gave the center her number so they could speak to her too and no one has called me back at all.
My car won't start!!!
Yes my day could have gotten worse! What a day. I'm about to cuss out every thing.
I have been hungry almost all morning and now I'm just mad. Surprisingly I haven't cried so I guess it's okay.
My mom was able to take the afternoon off and will have time to take me to my appointment. I guess it's a good thing since she will be able to see my ultrasound.
I've just called a friend who knows cars and will be here to check out what the problem is.
(I know exactly what you're talking about with orders getting through to the hospital. The last one I worked as a registration clerk, we had this weird centralized order-receiving system... and I'd say 50% of the time, the order wouldn't be there when someone came in. It was soooo aggravating.)
For some reason my parents seem to be so calm about it. I'm seeing dollar signs and they are like "let's have dinner.. Lets watch a movie" and I'm sitting here thinking "MY CAR MY CAR MY CAR!!"
But I should know what's wrong by tomorrow afternoon.
